Friday Night Cage Match/Fondue Party/Evolving Conversation/Dancing About Architecture Vol. 39
The other day, I wrote a post about the top touring acts of 2008. I put the Billboard Box Office list of the top ten grossing acts and their totals. Once again, here is that list…
Bon Jovi $210.6 million
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band $204.5 million
Madonna $162 million (still-underway)
the Police $150 million
Celine Dion $91 million
Kenny Chesney $86 million
Neil Diamond $81.2 million
Spice Girls $70 million
the Eagles $56.6 million
Rascal Flatts $55.8 million
When I look at the list, I think to myself; “There is absolutely nobody on that list that I would be willing to shell out $150.00 to go see”. But, I am the anti-demographic. People are paying big bucks to see these acts. Now the $150.00 figure is one I just pulled out of the blue sky. I would be willing to venture that that figure is not the top price for most of these acts. Matter of fact, I just read that big time
scalper uh…secondary market provider, Stub Hub, says that the average Madonna ticket sold at their joint was over $300.00.
Anyway for this exercise we will use the $150.00 figure.
A little different format for the old FNCMFPECDAA tonight.
Who would you pay $150.00 to see in concert?
Doesn’t have to be from the above list; could be anybody, artist/band anybody.
